Yesterday, my sister went back home to visit for 10 days or so. For those who don’t know me I am from Panamá, a little country at the end of Central America.
I can talk about Panamá all day long but I will just tell you some fun facts about the country…
- Panamá is the only place in the world where you can see the sun rise on the Pacific and set on the Atlantic.
- In Panamá, you can swim in the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean in the same day
What else can I tell you about my country? I miss it, I miss the food, I miss my friends and I miss the BEACH…Yes, I know I moved to Memphis, no where close to a beach. I took it for granted so much. I about 20 minutes from it and I never really appreciated it, but, now I miss it.
This is one of the reasons I write a blog and take pictures around town. I took a lot of the things that I had for granted and never appreciated them. The fact that I could wake up in the morning and pick ripe, sweet mangoes for breakfast, make chocolate with my grandma, not hot chocolate, but real chocolate from the cacao pods (you would call it organic chocolate – no preservative or additive), roast cashew nuts after eating the cashew fruit, going to the beach all the time. Oh, how simple life was. I don’t want to miss or not remember the things I see or I experience here, or for that matter, anywhere I go. That’s why I take the pictures, that’s why I do this. I am having a blast with this I hope you are, too!
